You’ll Love These Subs for Last Year’s Holiday Heels

’Tis the season for endless holiday festivities and no matter what plans are on the docket, a fashion girl needs options. Whether you’re prepping for an après-ski soirée, the office holiday party or an ice skating escapade, why settle with last year’s footwear to complete your looks? Besides, if you’re like us, you’ve sacrificed comfort for style one too many times and ended up with numb toes and painful blisters.

Although it may seem hard to part with those precious holiday heels, break out of the rut and opt for a tried-and-true, not-so-obvious staple—a pair of chic, versatile G.H. Bass & Co. loafers. With their prim (pain-free!) silhouette, menswear-inspired sophistication and luxe textures, colors and details, it’s a cinch to add an unexpected edge to any holiday outfit. And bonus: these versatile loafers are such a wardrobe staple, you’ll slip into them time and time again far beyond the season.

See the outfits we're wearing with our loafers, here.


For the Holiday Christmas Tree Haul

Put a shimmer in your step as you peruse the farm for the perfect tree in these gold metallic loafers. They instantly polish up a casual ensemble of of-the-moment button fly denim skinnies, a white raglan tee and an ultra-cozy fuzzy third piece.

For the Holiday Office Bash

Make a festive entrance at your office soirée with this sophisticated, velvet mule. It’s a casual-glam staple that endures the dance floor, several trips to the punch bowl—even a mad dash to collect that raffle win. Accent this rich velvet hue and feminine silhouette with a pleated asymmetrical skirt and statement making accessories.

For a Beloved Family Tradition: The Nutcracker Ballet

These plush velvet loafers with patent detailing are a sleek, wearable alternative to the tried-and-true strappy heel. For an evening of Tchaikovsky and endless pirouettes, pair them with a belted high waist trouser. And since theaters can be a bit drafty, opt for a chic cream toned turtleneck to fend off the chill.

For a Romantic Ice Skating Date

Step up to the rink like a star with these statement-making textured loafers. The refined silhouette and modern details are a classic match for a turtleneck/corset hybrid top and frayed edge cropped jeans. Pull the ensemble together with a taupe double breasted coat to keep it cozy and chic—perfect for cuddling with your S.O., post-skate.

For Holiday Brunch with Your BFF

For a brunch-worthy outfit, opt for a bright pop of color with these rich red-tone patent loafers. They pair perfectly with primary tones like a bold blue sweater layered over a crisp, white button-up. Cuff the sleeves for a casual vibe and add cat-eye sunnies to elevate the look.
